Bluebirds of happiness

I never get tired of photographing bluebirds.  There's something especially endearing about their bright-colored plumage, sweet expressions and pretty poses on fence posts and wires.

Below are a few new bluebird pictures that I took yesterday just outside our property as I bounced along the unpaved back road home from town.  I often take that route home, especially when I need something to perk up my mood. Needless to say, after watching the birds frolic about I felt much better.

Male Eastern Bluebird

Male and Female

A pose I can relate to:  Female is looking up at the male while he's looking the other way...  

The male and female bluebirds stayed close together.  Perhaps they have formed a pair bond and are preparing to mate.  



  1. Though I've had plenty of Perullas,I've never had a blue bird.And I would be jumping with joy if I saw one.

    1. I know what you mean, ChrisC. There are so many birds I would love to see, many of which are spotted within a 50 mile range of my home and yet, try though I have to attract them, they simply haven't come. Ah well, might just have to do a bit of traveling one of these days.
